(April 10, 2015 – Toronto, Ontario, Canada) Carroll County Memorial Hospital, a progressive-critical access hospital created in 1955, currently serves a three-county area. Its mission is to provide comprehensive healthcare services to the population to improve the healthcare status of its community and bring care close to home.
Carroll County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) offers subspecialty healthcare services including, but not limited to, cardiology, oncology, nephrology, neurology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and pediatric. In addition to primary care rural health clinics in Kentucky and Indiana, CCMH has general surgery and has been able to grow business by 20% from 2013 to 2014. CCMH is proud of its clinical affiliation with Norton Healthcare, which enables it to provide specialty services that most hospitals of its size can’t afford to bring to the community. Carroll County currently captures 70% of the medical cardiology market share.
Carroll County Memorial Hospital is set apart from other hospitals by its technology, the ability to provide comprehensive healthcare services in a rural community and their staff’s attitude of deep care for the patients, as they are also part of their community and friends.
Michael Kozar, CEO of Carroll County Memorial Hospital, mentioned that acquiring RamSoft’s PowerServer™ PACS was a collaborative decision between radiologists and facility. They were looking for a solution that would be able to bring the subspecialty services to CCMH. He explained that with PowerServer™ PACS, the process is more efficient for their staff and the radiology group out of Kentucky. Patients are able to get the results of their studies quicker and more complete than they ever had before.
According to Michael Kozar, one of the big advantages that RamSoft brings to CCMH is the capability to do diagnostic mammograms without patients having to travel outside the community. RamSoft’s PowerServer™ PACS enables CCMH to provide the same skillset and quality that is delivered by radiologists in Louisville, by bringing subspecialty reads in its facility.
“We considered a number of vendors and selected RamSoft because of its affordability, its ease of use, and for being able to meet specific needs of our organization. PowerServer PACS allows us to work closely together by having our radiology group and our hospital on the same system, and by using the same worklists and workflow for our facilities. It helps us provide a higher level of comprehensive care to our patients with its state of the art technology”, says Michael Kozar.
Al Kappel, Regional Sales Manager for RamSoft says: “We are excited to provide our radiology solutions to Carroll County Memorial Hospital. This institution deeply cares about their patients, not only by bringing them the best healthcare with ultimate technology, but also by really looking into their welfare and life quality.”
